Description

If they call you a know-it-all, well, you've got the last laugh - the best coffee in town!

So you think you know your coffee? Consider this book your advanced degree in all things java. You may think you know the how and why of roasting and brewing, but you nerds know nothing yet. This goes even further into everyone's favorite beverage. With even deeper history, techniques, science, and tasting guides than some of the other guides, you're going to obsess over this book for the ultimate coffee lover. The Little Coffee Know-It-All is not for the faint of heart.

What's the best way to store coffee and why? How do you brew the perfect cup of joe? What's the premium coffee bean in the world? What's the roast with the most? What's the real reason to use a siphon coffee maker? In The Little Coffee Know-It-All, Shawn Steiman, Hawaii's own "Doctor Coffee," answers these questions and more in a fun, playful but scientifically rigorous manner. If you are serious about your coffee, this book is the perfect companion to your journey from coffee drinker to a being a coffee know-it-all.
